Yesterday climaxed the end of Airtel Uganda’s music competition that saw a one Sandra Suubi take the top prize which included UGX 100 million and a recording deal with International Artist Akon . Sandra was among the top three finalist. Uganda’s R&B artist Tonix was humbled by Sandra and came in third place while Bruno K was the first runner-up.
The competition was an initiative by Airtel Uganda, in partnership with Trace, an international music video channel, and launched October last year. It started as an Interactive Voice Response (IVR) based music competition designed to create a robust platform for Airtel subscribers to achieve their dreams of becoming the next big music star in Uganda, and possibly across Africa and the world.
